  3. VAR standards in Premier League 'not good enough'published at 10:34 25 January

    Former Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards says VAR in the Premier League is "a shambles" after Liverpool's controversial penalty against Crystal Palace.

    Referee Kevin Friend was advised to go to the monitor and overturn his decision not to award a foul on Diogo Jota by Palace keeper Vicente Guaita.

    VAR has come under increased scrutiny recently after the pattern of referees heading to the monitor and subsequently changing their decision, a situation Richards says is untenable.

    "We've seen VAR used well but the standard in the Premier League is just not good enough," he said on BBC Radio 5 Live's Monday Night Club.

    "I've always tried to be protective of players and referees, but that was one of the worst decisions this season.

    "When you slow something down, it becomes a completely different incident.

    "It's a shambles at the moment."

  4. Your thoughts on Burnley's transfer windowpublished at 17:37 24 January

    There's one week to go until the transfer window closes and we've been asking for your thoughts on Burnley so far - who should Sean Dyche buy, sell or keep?

    Here are some of your views so far:

    Julian: Pathetic! Andy Carroll is well past his use-by date and the club needs to aim far higher than virtually unknown players from lower divisions. Villa sign Coutinho and Kieran Trippier goes to Newcastle. Burnley received £25m from Chris Wood’s transfer so should be spending that money and more on some A1 talent with Premier league experience.

    Kevin: No disrespect to Basham, Carroll and even Defoe. It's an old team now and Dyche has got to change his style with positive football players.

    Winnie: Sean should start bringing the younger guys in. Not old has-beens. I've supported Burnley since 1962, this is the worst team ever because there's been little or no investment. Bringing Joe Hart in a while ago was a disaster. Should learn that these old guys are NOT bargain buys.

    Bob: When our new owners took over a lot of us assumed money would be invested in new players. This wasn’t the case, and barring a miracle relegation seems certain! In my opinion the squad is in need of refreshing. We’re looking a bit long in the tooth and have one of the oldest average aged squads in the league. It’s time for more money, Mr Pace!

  5. 'Dyche and Burnley won't panic yet'published at 12:20 24 January

    Manager Sean Dyche and Burnley won't panic about sitting bottom of the table, says former Premier League defender Stephen Kelly.

    The Clarets are four points from safety with four games in hand and Kelly says their draw with Arsenal could prove vital.

    Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast, the ex-Tottenham right-back said: "The one thing about Burnley is that they have been here before.

    "I don’t think Sean Dyche or the team panic, because they tend to be around this most of the time. I thought this year might be the one where they go and it looks inevitable, but they are creeping back up.

    "Losing Chris Wood might galvanise them even more - that might be something that actually brings them together that they have lost a pivotal player. I know he’s not scoring loads of goals but is someone that was a main focal point for them.

    "Sean Dyche is not going to worry and his words epitomise him when he said he will look at the table at the end of the season. That’s what they focus on."

    • Arsenal failed to win a home Premier League game against a side starting the day bottom of the Premier League table for the first time since October 2008 (4-4 vs Tottenham), having won each of their previous nine such fixtures before today.

    • Burnley faced 20 shots in today’s game - the most they have faced in a Premier League game without conceding since May 2021 vs Fulham (21).

    • The Gunners have failed to score in four consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since December 2005.

    • Burnley have won just one of their last 21 Premier League games (D9 L11), while the Clarets have played out more goalless draws (4) than any other side in the Premier League this season.

  8. Arsenal lack firepower against organised Burnleypublished at 07:19 24 January

    "We tried in every different way but lacked the quality in the final third," said Mikel Arteta after Arsenal were held to a goalless draw against Burnley.

    Arsenal lacked firepower at Emirates Stadium and have now failed to find the net in each of their past four matches in all competitions.

    Arteta added: "We started slow, we looked leggy and didn't have enough rhythm or intention to attack the way we wanted."

    Still, it wasn’t easy for Burnley to hold their opponents at bay for 90 minutes, with Clarets keeper Nick Pope forced into making a number of fine saves.

    Dropped points mean Arsenal are now winless in their past five matches in all competitions and sit sixth, two points off Manchester United in fourth.

    But, for Sean Dyche's side, it was a much-needed point as they ended a run of three straight defeats and are now four points off safety having played four games fewer than 17th-placed Norwich City.

    This was the first match the Turf Moor outfit have played since the sale of Chris Wood to Newcastle. Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra started up front together in the target man's absence, but the pair rarely received the ball in attacking positions.

    Dyche will have been delighted with the defensive performance of his side - their next fixture, at home to fellow relegation-candidates Watford, will be one in which a more attacking mindset will surely be employed.

  9. Arsenal 0-0 Burnley : Dyche reactionpublished at 16:33 23 January

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche speaking to Match of the Day: "We will see in the bigger picture but it is another platform to restart. It is a small step because there is a lot of work to be done, but with three weeks without playing, the players have had little training, we are working with the group and trying to stay fit and well.

    "We are looking to refind that edge, slow Arsenal down and find a format that will change the feel of the game - there were moments in the game if we had a bit more quality on the transition we might have nicked something, but we'll take the point.

    "The main thing is physical because in isolation players can't do much. I was really pleased, the output was excellent. We have been trying to add quality and create chances but haven't found that balance, it was about being hard to beat, diligent and it got us a nice point."

    On any transfers: "We believe in the players we have got, it is a challenge when you lose good players like Woody. If we can activate the market I am sure we will."

    Mark Lawrenson takes on singer and Chelsea fan Call Me Loop in the latest round of Premier League predictions.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Burnley are going to be playing three times a week soon to get all their games played after having so many matches postponed, and with such a small squad that is going to cause them problems down the line.

    For now, though, that is not a factor. I know losing Chris Wood to Newcastle was a blow for the Clarets, but I think they might have a point to prove here that they can cope without him.

    So I am going for a bit of a surprise result here. Thursday's Carabao Cup semi-final with Liverpool is Arsenal's biggest game of the week and, if they take their eye off the ball on Sunday, the Clarets could nick something.

    I am going to go for a draw because, let's face it, Burnley are one of the Premier League's draw experts anyway.

    Call Me Loop's prediction: Arsenal are usually pretty good at home. 2-0

    Thomas Partey and Johan Berg Gudmundsson

    Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is suspended, along with Granit Xhaka, following his dismissal in the League Cup defeat by Liverpool.

    Nicolas Pepe and Mohamed Elneny are still at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Cedric Soares and Calum Chambers are expected to remain out.

    Manager Sean Dyche has said Burnley have 16 first-team players available.

    Erik Pieters, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Dwight McNeil have returned to training after recovering from Covid.

    Connor Roberts could also feature but Charlie Taylor remains doubtful due to a foot injury, while Maxwel Cornet is still on international duty.

    How would you solve Arsenal's midfield issues?

    Would McNeil go into your Clarets XI?

    Natalie Bromley, No Nay Never, external

    Burnley have been causing all sorts of outrage this week for asking the Premier League to postpone two home games following a Covid-19 outbreak at the club.

    Football loves a scapegoat, but Burnley shouldn't carry the can for the postponement problem, nor should we be made to play when others have been able to postpone.

    Actually, no club should. The Premier League set a precedent as to how Covid-19 outbreaks would be dealt with, and once that precedent was established, all 20 teams MUST be allowed to benefit from it.

    Infections have been staggered. Everton had to postpone their games around Christmas, but it would be some three weeks later before the pandemic hit the Clarets.

    We can’t just change the rules because we now realise that the decision we made wasn’t the right one, or that we don't like the consequences.

    All teams must be allowed an equal playing field in order to protect the integrity of the competition.

    In the meantime, I look forward to the feast that will be seven games in seven days coming to Turf Moor any time soon.

    Sean Dyche confirmed that a number of players are on course to return for the Clarets' trip to Arsenal on Sunday.

    Burnley had games against Watford and Leicester postponed because of a lack of available players, but that now seems to be coming to an end.

    "We have a few [out] but we are looking a bit healthier. [Ashley Barnes] is still getting over his injury, he is not ready yet," said Dyche.

    "Charlie Taylor is touch and go. Erik Pieters is back after Covid today, as is Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

    "Dwight [McNeil] has been back with the group. Dale [Stephens] has been back with the group.

    "It has been a long list but we have different people returning. Maxwel [Cornet] is still away until at least Wednesday. We had 16 out there today - we should be fine."

  17. Dyche on squad fitness, transfers and Arsenalpublished at 14:11 21 January

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been speaking to the media before the Clarets' trip to Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Sunday.

    Here are the key lines:

    • Dyche said there are a "few looking healthier" as they prepare for Arsenal following a number of postponements: "Barnsey is still getting over his injury, he is not ready yet. Charlie Taylor is touch and go. Erik Pieters is back after Covid today, as is Johann Berg Gudmunsson. We had 16 out there today, we should be fine."

    • While he remained coy on links to Andy Carroll, the Clarets boss made it clear it is about quality when it comes to incomings: "We have to get players who can affect the group in a positive way. If you want like for like players then we want better players, or certainly on the edge of the better players. Otherwise there is no point."

    • He also had praise for Sunday's hosts, saying there are in a "much better position than they were at the start of the season".

    Arsenal v Burnley. Form - Past five games. Arsenal - L Liverpool,  D Liverpool, L Nottingham Forest, L Man City, W Norwich. Burnley - L Huddersfield, L Leeds, L Manchester United,  D West Ham, L Newcastle.
    • Arsenal have lost just one of their past 18 league games against Burnley (W12 D5), though it did come in this exact fixture last season (1-0 thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang own goal).

    • Burnley are looking to win consecutive away league games against Arsenal for just the third time, previously doing so in December 1950 and December 1960.

    • Burnley haven’t scored more than once in any of their past 17 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions, since a 2-0 League Cup victory in December 2008. Only three teams have had longer runs without scoring more than one goal against the Gunners – Manchester City (25 between 1991 and 2008), Sheffield United (21, ongoing since 1992), and Wolves (20 between 1980 and 2018).

    • This is Arsenal’s first league game since their 2-1 home loss to Manchester City on New Year’s Day. The Gunners haven’t lost their first two league games to a calendar year since 2012, while they’ve not lost their first two home league games in a year since 1962.
